I haven't auditioned in over 70 years, so doing an audition at this time in my life is not exactly the norm. Doing a simple audition with sides is one thing, but performing as a 'yenta' a gossipy Jewish lady with a heavy Yiddish accent is entirely another venue. Not entirely impossible, just challenging.

You are two persons living together. You and your brain. You are not the boss. Your mind is the boss. I love my mind when it behaves and does what I ask it to do, which most of the time it does not.

The One Time When Age Is Really NOT Just A Number

About 10 years ago a good friend, who I totally respected and who is publishing a book on his philosophy of living called 'Presence Is Power' (love the title), told me that if I didn't get a computer there was no way I could keep up, understand, or live in this world of electronics. Finally, I gave in.

Do you remember when you were 5 years old and you thought Christmas only came once in a lifetime, because it took so long to come again? Why did I have to wait so long? Those 364 days were endless. Now decades later, Christmas comes like an avalanche.

Yoga is a way of giving back. The gift of life. Your body is a temple and if you give in, you will find universality. Yoga clears the mind and energizes the body and one is at peace with oneself and the universe. Yoga gives me a reason to wake up every day. Each day is a creative and positive day, when I'm practicing yoga.

Celebrating a 91st birthday is not what I'm after. Celebrating being here is where it's at. Celebrating the air we breathe, the ground we walk on. I celebrate each day that I wake up and can see the puffy white clouds in a beautiful blue sky. I celebrate living in this amazing city of Los Angeles.

Being born is one thing. Being born in NYC in 1923 is the best thing! That year has colored my entire life. To be a part of the Broadway scene in 1944 and to dance in the Shubert Theater and walk through stage door 6, nights and matinees. That was living!

I have a few thoughts about jumping out of a plane. Am I nervous? Am I frightened? Anxiety, yes, but once I'm flying I'll let go. At 85, it was the same with trapeze. Jumping from the platform was one thing, but flying was a piece of cake! On the trapeze, I was weightless and selfless.

The More, The Wiser

Being 20 is not better than being 90. It's just different. At 90, I'm more aware of being alive. I'm more appreciative of my life. I'm more compassionate. I'm more patient. I'm more cognizant of what I do. Yes, at 90, it's different AND better!

For me retirement means giving up. Half a life. The past dominates and the future is lifeless. UNLESS, you take on a new project, something you've never done before. Something that stimulates you mentally and physically. Dancing (ballroom), Swing, Latin, Tango, language (foreign), art, musical instrument, Yoga (any level), cooking.
